We are pleased to have Terri Hendrix and Lloyd Maines back to our home where they played to a full house during our first year of hosting house concerts (click here to see videos of Terri at Arhaven House Concerts). Terri is an award-winning Texas songwriter who spins sorrow into joy and wrings wisdom from the blues with a poetic grace and uplifting melodic flair. The classically trained vocalist and deft multi-instrumentalist (guitar, mandolin and harmonica) has released more than a dozen albums on her own Wilory Records label,
dodging musical pigeonholes her entire career by weaving folk, pop,
country, blues and swinging jazz into an eclectic style all her own.
That playful mix of styles, buoyed by her stage presence and the accompaniment of legendary producer/guitarist Lloyd Maines, makes for a highly energetic and spiritually uplifting live show.

"It was Hendrix' vocal virtuosity that really stole the show. Her masterful
storytelling and self-effacing humor made every song a highlight." — Kevin Yeanoplos, Tucson Concerts Examiner
“Terri Hendrix is a classic Texas texture: tough enough to never fold,
strong enough to cut her own path, woman enough to smile in the face of
fate and keep going." — Holly Gleason, SXSW 2011 No Depression/Blog
“The first time I saw Terri Hendrix perform, I
was taken by how different she was. Folky, jazzy, bluesy; a genre jumper
with a sense of timing all her own. — Jessie Scott, MusicFog.com
“Hendrix has, through a combination of pure
talent and hard work, grown into a first-class writer and a top-flight
instrumentalist.” — Jim Beal, San Antonio Express-News
"Terri Hendrix is an amazing performer and a great writer. Her
storytelling has a certain kind of believability that is natural, and
she can turn on a dime and twist it around
where it’s as unexpected and as funny as
anything you could imagine. All combined, it’s pretty amazing."— Joe Ely, Texas singer/songwriter
Terri Hendrix is a gifted songwriter and performer. Her ability to reach people with music and her positive attitude amazes me.— Helen Leicht, Music Director, WXPN-Philadelphia
“Simply put, Terri Hendrix creates the kind of music that makes you feel good, conceived and delivered with utter sincerity.”
— Richard Skanse, Texas Music Magazine
“ ... She is the consummate triple threat, excelling as a songwriter,
performer and recording artist. With more than a dozen albums in her
catalog, she seems equally
comfortable with blues, folk, story songs,
ballads, folk-rock, country and a surprisingly fresh take on New
Orleans-style jazz and jazz swing.”— Jim Lipson, Tucson Weekly
